We Stand in Solidarity with the Asian American Community to Denounce Hate and Racism

March 19, 2021

The number of hate incidents against Asian Americans in Los Angeles County and throughout our country continue to grow at an alarming rate.  Anti-Asian hate crimes are up 150% during the pandemic, according to the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino.  

We at the California Community Foundation are dedicated to creating a Los Angeles in which all of us can thrive. Right now, we know that many in our community are hurting. Many feel targeted, devaluedor afraid. We stand in solidarity with our Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities. We will continue to speak out and take action to bring about the changes that will make our imperfect paradise a beacon of inclusion and human dignity for every Angeleno. 

Many have reached out to us with an interest in how they can show their support.  Below is a list of resources to guide those you may know who have been a target of anti-Asian violence, as well as what you can do to stop this epidemic of racism.    

501(c)(3)s to consider supporting: 

Organizations/Campaigns that are not 501(c)(3)s but are doing work in this area: 

  • Racism is a Virus: online campaign created to empower Asian Americans and allies to rise up against violence and xenophobia. 
  • Esther Lim, with the help of the community, has translated pamphlets for how to report a hate crime in several languages: Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Thai, Vietnamese. 
  • LA vs Hate: Led by the Los Angeles County Commission on Human Relations, LA vs Hate is a community centered, artist driven campaign to support all residents of Los Angeles County (not AAPI-specific).
